InPreflight for InDesign
Zevrix Solutions has released version 1.5 of InPreflight, a comprehensive quality control solution for Adobe InDesign that lets users quickly and easily locate potential problems and produce error-free documents. InPreflight provides a robust preflight solution for service providers, printers, ad agencies, designers and publishing houses. InPreflight offers extensive information about a document's fonts, colors and links and allows to quickly spot potential problems according to user defined preflight settings. Version 1.5 lets users group preflight settings into presets based on preflight requirements for specific types of projects. Users can select various attributes to be flagged as problems, such as color mode, font type, image effective resolution, link status and other.
The new version also allows to detect the Registration color used in document's text, warns about links placed from unapproved locations, displays complete list of problems for selected elements and introduces several other powerful new features.
Users can also generate detailed preflight report, open links in default application and show them in InDesign document, reveal links/fonts in Finder and activate InDesign's Package command directly from InPreflight. In addition, those using Xinet FullPress workflow have an option to automatically relink images to hi-res OPI volumes before preflighting.
InPreflight 1.5 is available for the introductory price of $40; it requires Mac OS X 10.4.2 and higher, and works with Adobe InDesign CS and CS2.
